Activity Fair Highlights

Monday’s all-school lunch was a real scene for this year’s Activity Fair!

The La Salle Plaza was crammed with tables covered in sign-in sheets and information, smiling faces and colorful posters advertising the Drama Club, Robotics, the Fishing Club, the Book Society, Latinos Unidos, Women’s Empowerment… Students walked through the crowd wearing sandwich boards advertising Tech Crew, the Tea Club served beverages and the Cheese Club passed out samples. (Hardly Strictly) Guitar Club covered tunes such as Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child of Mine,” and Art in Action chatted with representatives from the Emerald newspaper about collaborating on comics this year.

The Activity Fair is one of the first events of the year. It provides a dynamic opportunity for students to publicize their clubs and school-sponsored activities to the student body. This school year, there are upwards of 50 clubs and seven Catholic Community Cohorts to choose from! but every year there is the potential for student interest to add another to the roster.

Each club offers something special for students. There are large institutions like The Oracle literary journal, Speech and Debate, TedX Youth, the Yearbook Club and the Emerald. Catholic Community Cohorts such as the Black Student Union, the Rose Club, Kapamilya and the Asian American Student Union offer welcome space for connection. Groups like Earth Action, Kiva, the Finance Club and the Coding and App Development Club offer students opportunities to gain hands-on experiences beyond the classroom. Clubs like the Knitting and Crafting Club, the Polynesian Dance Club and the Music Listening Club enable like-minded students to discover or pursue a fun activity among peers.

Each club or activity has at least one staff or faculty moderator and encourages new connections to be made with other students as well as adults on campus. Club participation, along with sports teams and VPA productions, also satisfies frosh co-curriculum requirements.

Monday’s Activity Fair was a party! As Spenser Morris, Director of Drama and Club Moderator Facilitator puts it, "It's an all-school lunchtime extravaganza where the spotlight's on all the fantastic activities SHC has up its sleeve. We're talking about an activity buffet that's hotter than a jalapeño-eating contest." We can’t wait to see what clubs bring the community this year.
